Manuverable, solid build, accuracy, power.
Out of production, spring twangs a bit, at least on mine.
The Air Arms Pro-Elite air rifle feels like real quality as soon as you pick it up. Heavy, weighs about 10.5lbs with scope and mount. I am the third owner of this particular gun and I do not see myself getting rid of it except to buy another in better condition, maybe. I have owned a Beeman R1 for about 20 years and I thought that was amazing. Well I believe the Pro Elite does it better. Slickness of operation, solid function, power, and accuracy. I am still floored by the guns uncanny accuracy. I can routinely shoot 5 shot sub 1 inch groups to my sight in range of 45 yards (135 feet). Crosman Accuppels are amazing and the JSB Exact 5.52 is right there also. My best group to date at 45 yards is 3/8th's of an inch, center to center 5 shot group. I don't really know what more you could ask for or hope an airgun could do especially of this power. At 45 yards in certain but not all parts of a 3/4 inch pine board the Accuppels were completely penetrating. Best shot to date 53 yard kill of a large Crow. All these measurements confirmed by a laser range finder. Keep in mind I am the third owner of this gun and the power is still there. Confirmed on a chronograph, 20 ft. lbs. In short, find one, get good chrony. info. and buy it. I do not think you will be disappointed. But then again not one gun is for everyone.
